An excellent film, which is really very tragic and the tragedy of Sandra and her parents, as well as the various players, makes for a very realistic portrayel of a true story and the terrible system of apartheid that is now no more , thank goodness.
Heartbreaking story of a coloured girl with white parents who grew up in South Africa during the 1950's. It shows the deeply flawed system of apartheid and the pain it caused to this family. Definitely a must-see to all South Africans.
This was a very good film. It is based on a true story, so that made it all the more touching. I can only imagine this family's struggle in raising such a child. But even more, Sandra's pain in growing up in such a world and never feeling like she belonged. Sophie Okenedo did an excellent job in portraying Sandra. She is such a wonderful actress. Worth seeing.
This is a very involving drama, not least thanks to a strong performance from Sophie Okonedo, who plays a black woman with white parents at the height of the Apartheid era in South Africa. She encounters a lot of prejudice and struggles to fit into society as she is shunned merely for her skin colour.
Film depicting the ridiculous and devastating politics that existed in apartheid South Africa, based on a true story of a black woman born to white parents in the 1950's. If you like true life, british produced drama this ones for you. Sophie Okenado is as wonderful as ever.
Rip out your heart and toss it onto the White Rhinos horn, it will be better off than it having to suffer this heartbreaking movie. So well acted, that the realism bashes your very soul and then kicks it around the park for a while as the actors craft supersedes that of the content. Photography is beautiful as one expects from Africa, background sound is striking. Nibbles: Potjiekos.
I really enjoyed this movie...let me say um truth b told...moms screwed a black guy, n if anyone buys that bullshit explanation about some African DNA in their family generations from way bck..then yall dumb as her stupid ass husband..the only African DNA MRS. Laing had in her is a AFRICAN man!!
